28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 960 Zotac v2 2GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How well will the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac v2 2GB Edition run 2019 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 200 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac v2 2GB Edition can run Cyberpunk 2077 at 1080p and predict it will return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order returns a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac v2 2GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 960 Zotac v2 2GB Edition running at 1440p is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.
